11/26/72 is a big time show!! I guess it doesn't get a whole lot of press because it circulates in pretty poor quality

I was gonna post this below, but maybe it flows better in this thread? Jer is boss man, it appears clearly to me. I came across this YouTube clip a couple of months ago. I was personally floored again - and, things won't be the same. It's recklessly pure, vintage, unblemished, raw GD exposed in Copenhagen. This clip brings us an incredible snap-shot of our boys over there.

Next Time You See Me

The soundboard mix on this clip is absolutely phenomenal. Pig's vocal's are strong and powerful w/ decent harmonies. We not only have Keith UP in the mix - on his sweet sounding fills (which was very rare during alot of '73 - this point sticks out in my head, anyway), but Phil is UP in the mix nicely as well. Jer punches through very clearly and powerfully. I wonder if it's Betty? (Her "archive" doesn't include this one, but it does put her in Paris on May 4, 1972, at The Olympia Theater.) The tune is played well, very tight.

The imagery looks like a 4-camera shoot laid down on videotape. It looks like this shoot was switched this way live, and it was the Director telling the Technical Director (guy who runs the video switcher), "take cam 1. Ready, camera 2. Standby, take cam 2....) This footage is quite priceless, imo. The "workingman's" Dead type attitude is presented beautifully. We have The Boys screwing around, and yet they're all business. The nuances of them captured "working" - in the act - is invaluable to any serious DeadHead.

Jer kicks it off. During this short string of notes, Pig adjusts the mic stand, clears his throat, and launches into it. Check out his chewed-up hat (brim) in the Pig-cam. And Weir has a shit-eatin' grin at the top. What's so funny? Keith-cam shows what seems to me to be a very blissful and comfy dude who is so sweet in this mix. Phil-cam says it all. Vintage Phil, always blissed out and playing amazing bass. Billy is in the groove here, lookin' good. Jer and Phil in t-shirts... Jer is bopping throughout.

But it is Jer who is commanding the sound here. It is so funny, I thought. Watching Pig playing harmonica, during the last half of his solo is soooo interesting. The video is switched to the 2-shot cam here, at 1:45. And there he is caught on camera, not once with just one hand going up, the first time - but, twice with both hands going up, the second time — Jer is motioning, "hey man, I'm next. Turn my guitar UP!" Thanks for the videotape.

If you are referring to the tv broadcast of 72-04-17 (Tivoli Gardens-Copenhagen) then you should pick-up the full show and forget youtube.

it is seeded on more than one torrent site...

some of the best video that I have seen from the era.

oh, and there are a number of past threads detailing the filming, etc., etc..

Just watched this for the first time last week (Cellar Door Records dvd) – I was curious after reading about it here in your post in September and others past.
Fine viewing – it was great to see Pig Pen.
